After close monitoring of the coronavirus pandemic and taking into consideration the well being of our delegates and speakers, the EBMLive organising committee have taken the decision to cancel the conference due to take place in Toronto 6 – 8 July 2020. We are working on strategies for an alternative one day EBMLive event in Toronto on  July 8th and will update you as soon as possible.

In the meantime we will review all submitted abstracts thus far and re-open the call for those who might not have been able to make the trip to Canada but can join Oxford. We plan to publish a supplement of abstracts already submitted and accepted for July 2020 in the BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine Journal.  All these abstracts will be offered the opportunity to present in Oxford July 2021.

All 2020 registered delegates will be offered a full refund or transfer of the registration to an alternative event.

What do you need to know
If you are registered and don’t want to attend an alternative event in Toronto or Oxford please contact and request a full refund.
If you wish to attend the proposed alternative event on July 8th partial refunds will be made in line with the registration pricing structure.  Please note this is tentative, we will update you as soon as possible.
If you have submitted an abstract for July 2020, please be patient we are working through submissions.
All David L.Sackett Fellowship applications are currently under review, all awards will carry over to Oxford 2021.
Registration for EBMLive 2021 will open after July 8th

Thank you for your patience.
